Volatile Organic Compounds
Volatile Organic Compounds
Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs, are gases released by plastics, paints, and scented air cleaners, among thousands of other household products. Without fresh air ventilation, volatile organic compounds become heavily concentrated in your home. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors and can lead to both minor and major health issues, including cancer. Typical symptoms include eye irritation, coughing, and sore throat.
Use fresh air ventilation from AprilAire to thin the buildup of volatile organic compounds inside your home.
Bring in fresh air from the outside and push out stale indoor air with whole-house fresh air ventilation from AprilAire. This process helps in reducing the concentration of VOCs in the air, especially with newly constructed homes, which are built to restrict airflow for improved energy efficiency. Fresh air ventilation is also considered an important tool in reducing airborne pollutants in indoor air by the National Center for Biotechnology Information of the National Institute of Health.
AprilAire Whole-House Fresh Air Ventilation systems meet several housing codes including the 2012, 2015, and 2018 International Residential Code and the 2012, 2015, and 2018 International Energy Conservation Code.
